Nutritional Bonus: Thanks to nutritional powerhouse collard greens, one serving of this dish contains 161% of your recommended vitamin A intake. The fat-soluble nutrient (making turkey sausage a perfect pairing!) is key to maintaining a healthy immune system, eyes and skin. Look for vitamin A in brightly colored produce such as spinach, sweet potatoes, bell peppers and carrots.
